HAF bannerShropshire HAF (Holiday Activities and Food) is an exciting programme of holiday activities. Children and young people who are eligible for free school meals and their families will be able to access free activities and food provision during the summer and Christmas holidays 2021.

Shropshire Council, funded by the Department of Education (DfE), is working with local schools, voluntary and community organisations and childcare providers to provide free places within their holiday clubs.

The aim of the programme, campaigned for by footballer Marcus Rashford, is to make holiday activities as accessible and inclusive as possible.

The free places are available on the programme for children and young people aged 5 to 16 who are eligible for benefits-related free school meals.

Children and young people are invited to take part in a range of fun activities, happening at over 30 venues across the county.
